David Spade

Hey Reese Witherspoon ...

YOU'RE NOT THAT FAMOUS!

Reese Witherspoon learned the hard way -- if you have to tell someone, "Do you know who I am?" ...  you're NOT as famous as you think you are, this according to David Spade.

Spade was leaving Boa Steakhouse in Hollywood last night when we asked if there's ever a good time for a star to drop the "I'm a really big deal" schtick ( a la Reese) ... and the "Rules of Engagement" star gave it to us straight.

"If you have to explain to someone you're famous, then you're technically not that famous."

#Truth.

It's Dave    

I give Reese a pass on this one. She's been a pretty well-behaved celebrity during her career. She was drunk and embarrassed herself. Been there.

Why the attack on David, he did speak the truth. Not everyone knows "all" celebrities. I don't know half the celebrities that some of these sites go on about, but I do know who David Spade is. Even before I started watching "Rules of Engagement." I knew he was a comedian, he may not be a "BIG STAR" but when has he ever purported to be one???
